College / Spadina (?) "cable installation": TTC detours, early April 8



The TTC has announced that, from 12:01 until 4:30 a.m. Thursday, April 8, it’s detouring streetcars along four routes “during cable installation”.

(The transit agency has not provided more information about the project that’s disrupting service, nor has it confirmed the location of the work. However, it’s likely taking place at or near

  • the intersection of College Street with Spadina Avenue.)

It’s detouring streetcars along these routes:

  • 306 Carlton overnight;
  • 310 Spadina overnight;
  • 506 Carlton; and
  • 510 Spadina.

Note that the TTC is already detouring streetcars along the 306 / 506 Carlton routes during sinkhole repairs on College between Huron and McCaul Streets. It is also operating shuttle buses to replace streetcars along the routes so it’s detouring the buses around the cable-installation work zone.

Shuttle buses also replace streetcars along the 310 / 510 Spadina routes during the installation.
